. a housing cyclone that hollowed out more homes that hurricane katrina and sandy combined. the very definition of disaster needs broadening. we need to recapture the initial horror created by those single natural disaster and put it toward the relief of our on going national disasters. the energy gathered by gale force winds has the power to focus our public attention. superstorm sandy may help the electorate focus in the few days that remain in the 2012 presidential campaign. our vote on tuesday will be for a disaster manager and chief taking charge of a country in an economic state of emergency, building a society that leaves all of us more prepared for disaster. at my table is ari melber, msnbc contributor. norry tan dan, kate dawson and david rodi, a reuters columnist and contributor for the atlantic. thank you all for being here. >> i want to start with you. the article, the piece you wrote was about the inequalities that have been revealed in the con te context of sandy. >> i am one of the privileged new yorkers. there has always been divisions in the city but this storm broug
overseas and with hurricane katrina down in new orleans, and they say it does not look much different. walking around and having it be dead silent and hearing the hissing of natural gas coming out of the ground, we are still as of yesterday in search and rescue mode to be sure everyone is out of their house and safe before they allow people to come back. it is a very frustrating time. i can tell you what he was talking about on the earlier call, i had the opportunity last night to talk to some people in the shelters and they are amazed at the amount of people willing to help, total strangers. random citizens donating goods to try to help their fellow man. it is unfortunate it takes a tragic event like this to bring the best out of people. host: what is the best way the federal government can help your district? guest: first of all, the president has been doing everything he needed to do along with the governor in giving the governor of the tools that we need here in new jersey to get this process started. it is going to be a multi-year process to get us headed back in the right direct
and disasters i'm absolutely confronted by these two americas, the katrina/fema reaction and the sandy/fema reaction and the reality is to argue there hasn't been a significant political response to the significance of fema by different governments and it's not split down party lines. it's simply not true. there was a really great article in "mother jones" that took you through -- >> the development of fema competence. >> right. and who had headed fema and the way that presidents had appointed those fema heads were directly related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards for the international arabian horse association, that's who headed fema. clinton was the first -- was the first president to allocate the fema head who actually had experience -- >> disaster. >> -- disaster management. it's not political. it's about poverty. it's about race. and when we think about disaster

oceanic and not mr. association, the costliest storms to hit katrina by one at funk shot. take, about 30 billion. andrew in 90 to about 36.5 billion. wilma in 2005, i've been 18 billion, charlie indo for 15 billion, reader, frances and jeanne all and hurricane damage. in your view, does the national flood insurance program currently structured work? >> i think it does work. it does help protect consumers from an uninsurable event in the private arcade. the program was created in 1968 was the result created because the private market could not accurately and in suitably underrate the insurance risk. so what was happening was people were completely without flood insurance protection. so is happening in the 60s and 50s as american citizens were being flooded and the only recourse that she had was federal disaster assistance after the fact. so the program was created to have people pay into a program and be prepared for storm and a flood event before it happened. now, it certainly could use improvement. you know, there are critics out there whose fate is is too subsidized by the federal gove
was stronger than katrina in terms of surface energy and stronger than andrew or whohugo. it had more damaging power than any of those storms. clubs break and chilly tonight temperatures mid-20s inland. a high of 48 for election day. then we could be flirting with 70 degrees part of this weekend. and then talk about thunderstorms for the bears game may be. is it possible that because louisiana was a bathtub so speaking just held all of the water from katrina and that's what it looked so much worse than sandy? >> i think there is truth to that. this integrated kinetic energy takes into account the area of which the wind is blowing so it's a better index then looking at the damage potential of all of these storms. >> a bipartisan push to get voters to close a new effort in encouraging immigrants to get out and vote. the name your price tool shows you a range of coverages and you pick the price that works for you. great. whoa, whoa, jamie. watch where you point that thing.

their lives. >> you remember this back with katrina, the same thing happened where a lot of residents in new orleans had seen a lot of hurricanes before. and they heard this is going to be the storm of century, and nothing ever happened to their houses, and they ignored evacuation orders. you can't -- there's only so much preparation you can do. you can never create a risk-free society. you can't prepare for everything. you know, but one of the things that has to happen in these situations for things to work right is for the government has a part to play, but individuals have a part to play, too. you've got to be working together so when people -- some of these people, obviously, their pain is genuine and totally understandable. but some of these people did, you know, were told to leave and didn't leave. and you understand why they didn't. it makes sense in human terms, but, you know, there is a responsibility that you have for yourself in addition to what the government obviously has for you. and again, if both sides are woaren't working together, that's when things fall apart. >> the perso
. but things have changed, haven't they? >> the whole story really is the cold katrina that is going on up there in parts of new york and part was new jersey as you just reported. i think this has gone way beyond a happy chappy political photoop event and has become something terbelieve for a lot of people. it is almost for a moment outside of the realm of politics as they suffer through. >> i was staggered to see a poll yesterday on the david gregory show said 65 percent of the country approved the president's handlingly the storm. have a talked to the people it is impossible for me to see how someone gets high grades because they put on a jeans jacket and walk through the rubble. >> it was early on in the days of the storm, it looked like government was in control and the president was there walking around new jersey. but very quickly, this turned into a story whose headline in time government didn't work so well, didn't it? they didn't get in the water or blankets and they ran out of the gas and as for the electrical situation, it is not a katrina where it is warm outside. people are co
of hurricane katrina. this is a response and a relief effort that is woefully inadequate. we have people without gasoline. we have people without power. now it's almost a million and a half people. came down about a half million from the weekend. it is a very tough job. but let's be clear. we have an emergency situation here in this federal government is not responding. it is not doing what it should help. we are supposed to have gasoline supplies and hundreds of thousands of people -- they don't have power to run their generators. we are supposed to have gasoline for the people, the motorists, the commuters, those were trying to go about their work lives without heat and without power in their homes and their kids are not in any case to be in school. and we have a president who is not responding to the emergency. he is campaigning. i understand the conflict. but my goodness, part of what he is required to do and part of what this governor, chris christie should be thanking him for, is actually being effective. that hasn't happened at. megyn: lightning chris christie was so fawning? lou:
capitol. >> plus, giving back with a helping hand and a hot meal. victims of hurricane katrina say it's their turn to make a difference in the aftermath of super storm sandy. fox 5 morning news at 7:00 starts right now. >> this is fox 5 morning news. >> wow. good morning to you. it's monday november 12th , 2012. the sun is peaking through the clouds there. >> pretty. >> tucker says it's going to be a nice day at least for a little while. it is monday november 12th. good morning to you. >> and i'm allison seymour. i can't wait another second. what is this going on? >> what else do you need to know? >> i don't have a degree so it's not credible. >> he does have one degree. >> i do have a degree. >> wisdom and i will put this forecast together for you. it's going to be a nice start but if you want the sun enjoy the next couple hours. eventually rain showers associated with our next cold front that is moving through indiana and ohio. not going to rain today but it will start to turn cloudy by late morning and this afternoon. much of your day will fay tour cloud cover. one more very mil
and robust enough to respond to three nuclear events in the same day. it is clear from hurricane katrina and hurricane sandy this is a passing slow incompetent bureaucracy utterly overwhelmed it in new orleans. what it does to president obama we as a nation need to demand a very, very dramatically over hauled department. as to obama's situation i think he probably peaked about three hours after chris christie you go hugged him. he looked bipartisan looked like the commander-in-chief. he was doing the president's job not the candidate's job. it is accelerated by this absurd comment about the revenge. i am sure the president will take it back as he could. it is so jarringly destructive and i think it sent such a bad signal to most americans about how small minded and mean spirited president obama was capable at times. >> i was stunned at the revenge comment. mitt romney hit the right cone said no i am running for the american people. let me run this again. i want to run them side by side. it is so glaring the difference. you can see in their closing arguments here the president is on the
city. however if you go back seven years to hurricane katrina the news then about that storm was how president bush and fema and michael brown and everybody failed. you never heard about mayor nagan and governor belong could he. now the situation is reversed and it's bloomberg taking the blame for the storm and not doing better for it as opposed to president obama. if this were bush right now you'd be seeing a split screen of bush campaigning, and then people being miserable in their wrecked houses back home in queens. jon: what about that? we heard from david lee miller earlier today, a hispanic woman getting up there in years complaining how absolutely miserable it is where she's live. why should that not be president obama's fault as it was president bush's fault? >> katrina was a much larger national issue than with all due respect to queens. jon: why? >> because katrina was -- the magnitude of katrina in terms of what it represented nationally was not specific to a neighborhood in new york. overall the reaction to sandy has been -- jon: so the president is not -- i mean he's the
have a capacity to hurt for example, katrina, than to help, or blame any candidates themselves. there are a number of people who have been blaming this on the global warming. this probably hurts obama a little bit in that it adds to the general feeling that things are amiss in america. the one swing state most affected by this storm, pennsylvania, and if there's one place you could see the effect of hurting the voter turnout, it would be virginia. >> stephanie: why. >> i have been waiting for him to go through puberty for 15 years. it is telling how off his analysis is just looking at the polls that have come out about the president's handling of this. 90% of the american people say he is doing a good job. in terms of climate change he named a few politicians -- % >> stephanie: and obama didn't say i'm going to lower the level of the oceans as you recall. it is unbelievable. >> no, al gore said the president should have said that, and that's what the goal should be. any politician who uses that as a punch line should be punched in the nose. >> stephanie: exa

, and sometimes to rebuild things. and that is in fact exactly what happens after storms. after hurricane katrina it was $113 billion of federal money that went down there to rebuild that area. there is a ratio that the government spends arch these disasters. it's 75% after the state and local governments have spent 25%. that's a disaster aid formula that has been around for a long time. there is another ratio where the federal government spends 90% and the state only spends 10%. how in the world are they going to rebuild that after the federal government. it all works together. it doesn't mean that you only need federal government and you don't neat local contractors or governors or mayors, of course not. that's a ridiculous and extreme comments that only republicans would make. speaking of ex-treatment comments, do you remember mitt romney said he didn't believe there should an federal fema? unbelievable. he was asked about that from reporters. let's get the response. >> what is your response about fema? >> cenk: he was asked 14 times that day and i never answered the question. that's pretty te
katrina where it was failures on the part of the federal government's response. you don't have that negative aspect. you have chris christie, the most visible republican in the country. certainly according to the media one of the better liked ones. he's out there using his platform to vouch for the leadership of the democratic president. i think that makes a powerful statement to people. i think having bloomberg weigh in makes a pretty strong statement to people as well. and i think just -- it's tough to quantify this. i think it's impossible to quantify this. to me it creates this noise that's sort of in the air, in the media air, and sort of in the conversational air in this country. it creates noise that i think takes wavering voters who maybe were soft obama supporters or soft romney supporters, i could see it moving them, you know, a small share of people, but i could see it moving people toward obama making them more comfortable with the idea of re-electing him. if it's a 1% or something, small, but it's big in the context of this election. >> in the context of endorsemen
million without power in the south five days after hurricane katrina. some relief for those in manhattan, new york city mayor michael bloomberg promising that most of the burroughs power will be returned by midnight tonight. but any progress on that front has been severely undercut by long lines again -- attestations the new york governor saying he signed an executive order waiving a requirement that fuel tankers register and pay taxes before unloading insisting his order we will help get gasoline to consumers faster. it is estimated that two-thirds of gasoline stations in new jersey and new york are not in business right now. however, it is little comfort for people stuck for long hours in long lines to with no guarantee that they will get gas at the end of that line. but some people, at least some are beginning to dry. this is a very serious and frustrating matter for literally millions of people in this region. turning now to benghazi, almost two months after the terrorist attack that killed four americans, the cia has released a new timeline, a timeline of its actions suggesting it p

play a positive role in our lives. one of the reasons katrina was such a big scandal is for years, particularly under clinton, who really did a good job of reforming fema. we said, yeah, this is one of the things the federal government does well. and when states get into trouble like this, yes, they can do things for themselves and they do a lot of stuff for themselves. but they've got to have the fed. i think right now, he has no choice but to say, well, whatever i said before, i'm going to keep fema. >> e.j. dionne, are we going to be lacking on this campaign, if romney loses, saying, it was the 47% tsunami. that it really was that that set the table for a lot of other problems that he just couldn't overcome throughout this campaign? >> well, i think that the -- whatever momentum romney had from the first debate stopped. and my reading of the polls is the last week had already been going at least slightly in obama's direction. and at least on the first couple of days, from the reaction to what the president did, from the difficulties romney has, this appears to be helping obama
of the indelible images of government failure after katrina. that's what people are reminded of. that's when you had a president and a federal government that did not work, did not come to the aid of people. so you don't have to talk about the bush legacy. you don't have to draw the comparison because it's right there in people's heads. in the case of our dear friend on radio, what's left of his head is xleerly exploding. >> ideologue is the kindest thing said about rush limbaugh on my show. richard wolffe always keeps it classy. richard wolff sxechlt chryst'll ball, thank you both very much for joining us tonight. coming up, mitt romney actually tells the crowd in ohio that he knows all about hurricane cleanup because, this is absolutely true, this is what he told them, he once had to help clean up the football field after a football game when he was in high school. seriously. that's his experience with cleanup. and that's in the "rewrite." and with the election just six days away, will voters across the northeast be able to actually vote on election day? will the hurricane problem still be goi
the national feeling here. when katrina happened, i got a call the day after from haley barbour, the republican governor from mississippi, who, of course, is a friend of mine. and he said, i need guardsmen. can you send me guardsmen? pennsylvania had, you know, no nickel on that dime. we're thousands -- hundreds of miles away from the gulf, but we have 20,000 guardsmen, and i activated 2,100 and sent them down to mississippi and to louisiana, and the interesting thing, chris, is i got tons of letters citizens of those states thanking me, but i also got letters from my own guardsmen, who said it was the best thing they've done since they've been in the national guard, to help americans from another area of the country who are suffering. and that's the spirit that takes over, and it's, as you said, what makes us a special place. >> well, that's why people like you and they like haley barbour, thank you, governor rendell, and thank you, david corn. you never get to be a governor, you don't get to know what that's like. and for the latest on the devastation on the jersey shore, we turn to ron allen
to enter the ports up here. recall this was a big deal during katrina. the jones act requires all vessels carrying products between u.s. ports to fly under the u.s. flag, be built in the u.s., and be crude mostly be u.s. citizens the fact they're waiving that will hopefully expedite more fuel in here. what are they doing on the ground? trying to get the power to restored to gas stations that don't have power. you can't pump gas if you don't have power. power is restored to the terminals to get the fuel, of course, on to the trucks. that's a priority. now, there are trucks moving and there is gas here. the issue are those other two issues really kind of slowing things down and then by the way, we still have some of these huge massive refineries taken off-line trying to get them up and running but that could be a while as well. this part of the country consumes more oil, more gas, than any ear part of the country on a daily basis. it drinks it. they have goat this stuff moving not only to power cars but generators because of people, people don't have any electricity. they need generators to
to learn the lessons of katrina. you watch the next three or four weeks. everything you are seeing on staten island is the government that barack obama thinks is competent enough to handle your healthcare. this is a really bad situation. because of the presidential campaign it's not getting the attention it should be getting. >> speaker, thank you. >> thank you. >> and wisconsin will matter and vice president candidate paul ryan is about to rally his hometown crowd one more time. can the republican ticket take the badger town? that's next. and what about the evangelical vote? it was a huge vote in '08. is the media underestimating the impact of the evangelicals this year? sarah palin is here. she's been talking to the evangelicals. that's coming up. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. if we want to im
